Higher Ed trends: Facilities matter for recruiting; half expect to build

Mortenson, a U.S.-based builder, developer, and engineering services provider serving the commercial, institutional, and energy sectors, surveyed nearly 100 professionals at the 2019 Society of College and University Planning (SCUP) annual conference to understand higher education challenges, opportunities, and effective campus practices. Survey participants represent higher education planners and administrators as well as the architects who support them.

This is the second study conducted by Mortenson at the SCUP annual conference since 2012. This study takes a close look at how things have changed over time.

The poll, “The Evolution of Higher Education and the Impact on U.S. Campuses,” found that higher education institutions in the United States are in a time of transition. In the face of funding challenges and increased pressure to grow enrollment, higher education leaders are being asked to adopt evolving methods of teaching and do more to support the students they serve.
